Miracle no-one died



IT was a day of miracles for motorists on Tweed roads yesterday.

By mid-morning 15 cars had been involved in two separate and horrifying accidents that miraculously left no-one seriously injured.

At 9am a small van clipped a 4WD in the northbound lane of the Tweed Bypass, the impact sending both vehicles through trees, a fence and into the scrub.

Hours later and only a few hundred metres down the road, a runaway semi trailer ploughed through a packed highway of cars, throwing them to the left and right like a wrestler throwing off midgets.

Motorists were left among a scene of complete destruction and with an overpowering feeling of luck, marvelling that no-one had been killed.
